To Thee, my heart, eternal King,
Would now its thankful tribute bring;
To Thee its humble homage raise
In songs of ardent, grateful, praise.
All nature shows Thy boundless love,
In worlds below and worlds above;
But in Thy blessèd Word I trace
The richer glories of Thy grace.
Here what delightful truths are giv’n;
Here Jesus shows the way to Heav’n;
His name salutes my listening ear,
Revives my heart, and checks my fear.
For love like this, O may our song
Through endless years Thy praise prolong;
And distant climes Thy name adore,
Till time and nature are no more.
